Stretch marks are damage to the structure of the thick layer of skin tissue (derma) under the epidermis. Stretch marks look like scars. Sometimes stretch marks are called women’s tears. Stretch marks appear when the skin stretches beyond its natural capacity. In case of pregnancy or a sudden weight gain, stretch marks have a straight shape. The length of stretch marks in most cases is from one to ten centimeters.
What causes stretch marks? The main causes of stretch marks are:
- A sudden weight gain;
- Genetic predisposition.
- At Fashion Point health and beauty center stretch marks can be fought in several ways, based on a number of factors.
Here are the main ones:
- Stretch mark age;
- Stretch mark type;
- Stretch mark size;
- Stretch mark color.
- One of the most efficient and non-traumatic methods is the use of Venus Versa nano fractional radiation device.
Fractional RF energy is delivered to the skin tissue by means of a replaceable applicator that provides therapeutic depth of penetration (up to 500 microns). It has 160 special metal pins, which are in close contact with a patient’s skin and serve as the best possible conductor of radiofrequency energy into the skin. This applicator is individual and must be purchased personally by each client.
Pink and red fresh stretch marks are the easiest and the fastest to remove. White old stretch marks are the most difficult to treat and require a greater number of sessions. Usually, they require combined treatment that can be offered to you at Fashion Point beauty and health center after a consultation with one of our specialists.
